Our Common Beliefs
I hope you'll join us for a special & fruitful conversation online with Dr. Craig Considine about his new book called People of the Book: Prophet Muhammad's Encounters with Christians on Sunday, June 12 at 2-3:30pm EST!
The Christians that lived around the Arabian Peninsula during Prophet Muhammad's (Pbuh) lifetime are shrouded in mystery. Some of the stories of the Prophet's interactions with them are based on legends and myths, while others are more authentic and plausible. But who exactly were these Christians? Why did Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) interact with them as he reportedly did? And what lessons can today's Muslims and Christians learn from these encounters? These are some of the questions explored in Dr. Craig's book. Dr. Craig speaks in admiration of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) by highlighting his vision of an inclusive Ummah or Muslim nation, rooted in citizenship rights, interfaith dialogue and freedom of conscience, religion and speech.
This conversation is hosted in partnership with my friend and colleague Becca Tyvoll of Peace Catalyst International, DC , and we can't wait to see you for this interactive end enriching discussion with Dr. Craig about his book, and any questions you may have about the interactions that took place between Christians and Muslims in the early 7th century!
